Hot rods and hot dogs were the joint attraction at lunchtime Friday, as the School of Transportation Technology hosted an informal reception outside the Parkes Automotive Technology Center. Drawn by free hot dogs – and vehicles displayed by students, faculty and others – automotive technology and collision repair majors had the opportunity to meet classmates as well as their academic advisers.
